If you have hung around here for any length of time, you have heard me talk about the Stitching Sisters Quilt of Valor group that I am lucky enough to be a part of. They meet once a month for sew days, but since they are about 90 minutes away and I work every other Saturday, I have only gotten down there to sew with them twice! Usually, one of the faithful members of the group attends the meetings and picks up tops for me. Then we meet halfway and she hands them off. When I am done quilting them, we meet up again and she delivers the finished quilts. Last weekend, all things worked out and I was able to go. I had a great time quilting with my friends and we even had a quilt presentation that afternoon. Yay!
Here are some pictures. First the quilt is awarded by the maker, Karen made this top and I got to quilt it.
We unfold the quilt so everyone can see it.
Then we wrap our vet in a big quilty hug and tell him (or her), “Welcome home!”
This next one was made by Val. Love it!
And this last beauty was pieced and quilted by Sue over on the left.
Such an honor to be a part of this!
I love this organization and am blessed to be a part of it. These ladies trust me with their precious tops and I never take that for granted. They have welcomed me into their group with open arms. This is my “tribe.”
